DownEast Basics Fun Fashion Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #389!


As a full time stay at home mom in an one income household, I don't get to spend a lot of money on myself. When I do shop for myself, I look for things that are well made and reasonably priced. While I want to look presentable, I don't want to spend a lot of money on clothing that's going to look outdated in a couple of months. When I was given the chance to work with DownEast Basics, I really looked forward to seeing their clothes in person.

From looking at DownEast Basics website, I saw that the store offers affordable and fashionable clothes, but what about the quality?




I received the Sunshine & Rainbows Dress to review. As soon as I opened the package and felt the material I was sold. The dress was really soft and it looked even prettier in person. I thought the construction of the dress was great -- very nicely made. After trying it on, I thought the dress was really beautiful (although I am definitely not as cute as the model on their website). I also want to mention that I often have problems finding things that fits me just right (even after looking at the size charts that each website offers). DownEast Basics is one of the very few stores I have found that has a size chart really does works! Hooray for me :).

All in all, I thought that for the quality of the dress I received to review, the price was very reasonable. Honestly, it is worth every penny and more. I am in love with this store and I will be shopping there in the future.

To buy your own fashionable and affordable clothes, please go to DownEast Basics to make your purchase.

Many thanks to Kathy. She has generously offered 1 item of winner's choice as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers. The person who wins this giveaway is not eligible to win another DownEast Basics giveaway on my blog for 90 days. This giveaway is open to US residents only please.
